One sip and you will be lost for words

    • When you get your lips around this luscious, juicy, luxe Malbec it’s like you’ve packed your bags and travelled with Ben on his Argentinian adventure to make his Angel-voted Winemaker Fantasy! Rich with ripe intensity and beautifully balanced with delectable spicy aromas.
    • Having the pick of the finest Mendoza vineyards, Ben literally tasted hundreds of grapes before settling on two perfect vineyards: one aromatic block at 500m and one at the foot of the Andes at 1300m. Phewww! 
    • Nothing was spared in the making of this classic red: pristine concrete tank ferment, the addition of 30% new oak, a luxurious 12 months maturation in barrel and then bottled in an oh-so-impressive tapered bottle and closed under traditional cork. Um, got a corkscrew?

Ageing advice
It will age well for the next 5-10 years, but very approachable now.

Serving advice
Open and savour over a few hours, or even a couple of nights. Don't buy one bottle because when you crack the first and plan to cellar the second you will be in trouble. It will improve with age and challenge your willpower.

Local food match
STEAAAAAAAAAAAK cooked over a fire.
